The Marquette Neighborhood Commitment seeks to change hunger in the Chicagoland area by helping provide food, donations and volunteers to local organizations. 

Mobile Food Pantries
We partnered with Illinois Partners in Hope to bring mobile food pantries to Marquette Bank branches. In 2021 we hosted 4 mobile food pantries that distributed food to over 1,900 families.
Greater Chicago Food Depository Employee Volunteers      GCFD Volunteering
Bank employees and family members contribute hundreds of volunteer hours at the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD), sorting and packing food that is later distributed to local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in the Chicagoland area.  

Food Donations

Food items are collected at all branches and given to the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) , the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) and local food banks to be distributed to soup kitchens and shelters in the Chicagoland area. 

Port Ministries Bread Truck

Port Ministries Bread Truck
Each month during the summer and when needed, Bank employees pack over 300 hundred lunch bags filled with a sandwich, drink, fruit and snack, which is then distributed by the Port Ministries Bread Truck to local adults and children in need.
